With exceptional access to one of the UK’s biggest and busiest NHS trusts, BBC Two’s critically acclaimed Hospital, produced in partnership with The Open University, returns for four new episodes.
Following on from the success of the first series (which aired on BBC Two earlier this year and attracted audiences of over three million viewers) cameras return to Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London for a month during spring 2017.
Edited and broadcast within weeks of filming, the second series delves even deeper into some of the most complicated and challenging issues that staff at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust face. The programmes will explore the real human stories behind the headlines - from the volume of mental health patients in A&E, to accessing new cancer drugs and following complex life and death decisions when the hospital finds itself responding to a major terrorist incident (Episode One).
Filmed by multiple crews, showing numerous perspectives, Hospital continues to probe the extraordinary dilemmas and decision-making that unfolds every day in the Trust’s five hospitals.
